BONUS CLUB SALE MONDAY, DEC. 5: 20% OFF STOREWIDE 9AM-5PM AND 25% OFF DURING THE PARTY (5-9PM)! FREE BEER, BLACK KEYS LISTENING PARTY, TIM J. FROM THE RIVER BROADCASTING LIVE!

The Record Exchange annual Bonus Club Sale will be held on Monday, Dec. 5, and we’re gearing up to party like never before.

This year, we’re upping the savings to 25% OFF STOREWIDE DURING THE PARTY (5 TO 9 P.M.) AND 20% OFF STOREWIDE DURING THE DAY (9 A.M. TO 5 P.M.).

And that’s just the start. To enhance your holiday shopping experience, the evening festivities also will include:

• BLACK KEYS LISTENING PARTY. The Black Keys’ highly-anticipated new album El Camino hits the shelves on Tuesday, Dec. 6, and we’ll preview the entire album on the store hi-fi at 8 p.m. Pre-order El Camino on CD or vinyl and take home a Black Keys gift, then pick up the album the next day! Eager beavers can hear a couple of full-song streams (plus a righteous one-man-dancing video) HERE.

• FREE CRAFT BEER FROM PAYETTE BREWING CO. We’ll have a keg of delicious, Boise-brewed craft beer from our new partner Payette Brewing Co., and you’ll get to drink some for free (provided you’re 21 or older and show us a valid I.D.).

• LIVE RADIO REMOTE WITH THE RIVER’S TIM JOHNSTONE. Our friend Tim Johnstone from 94.9 FM The River will be on the air live from The Record Exchange from 6 to 8 p.m.!

• BAD CHRISTMAS SWEATER CONTEST. Start combing the thrift stores and your mother’s closet, because we’re decking our bad selves in bad Christmas sweaters and hope you do, too. Enter the contest and you just might be crowned king or queen of bad Christmas sweaters! Everyone (staff and customers) will cast votes, and the first-, second- and third-place winners will take home bad-ass prizes!

• FOOD TRUCK (TBD)

• GIVEAWAYS

• RAFFLE PRIZES

2011 HIGH SCHOOL GRADS: 20% OFF AT THE RX OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!

You came, you saw, you conquered algebra. And now, Class of 2011, you get a discount at The Record Exchange.

All 2011 high school graduates who show us their diploma receive 20% off anything in the store (excluding sale/clearance items) Friday-Monday, May 27-30.

(If you’re a college graduate and you’re thinking, “What the hell, where’s my discount?!,” don’t worry — your day is coming, too. But BSU hasn’t even sent out diplomas yet so it’ll be some time after that.)

Now, if you’re a parent, partner, relative, friend or general well-wisher of a 2011 grad — high school, college, whatever — here’s your chance to get your grad a gift that rocks. Here at The Record Exchange, we got a couple — as in, a couple thousand.

For the music lover, of course, we have Idaho’s largest selection of new and used CDs and vinyl records, plus posters, shirts, DVDs, turntables, accessories and much more.

In The Record Exchange Gift Shop, we have greeting cards, jewelry, apparel, dorm-ready (i.e. practical and cool) home wares and much more.

Wanna go the gift card route? The RX has you covered there, too.
